Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco, CA
Kofi Bonner: Community Building — for Profit
He found his heart in San Francisco

By Emily Cadei
July 1, 2014. 

Looking for a minefield of a redevelopment project? Try San Francisco’s abandoned Navy shipyard and Candlestick Park stadium at Hunters Point. 

Start with a federal Superfund site that once housed radioactive materials. Mix together state and local bureaucracies with federal and military overseers. Then add a landfill with asbestos in the soil. Combine that with a historic neighborhood that suffers from the worst poverty and crime rates in a city where, for many, the “housing crisis” is middle- and upper-class people scrambling to find property under $1 million.

The decades-long, multibillion-dollar project is the most complicated he’s ever worked on, in this most ‘complicated and complex city.’

In other words, most developers would run the other way. But not Kofi Bonner, a regional vice president at mega-developer Lennar.
